Garic, one of the UK’s most innovative manufacturers and suppliers of construction site welfare facilities will be launching the latest in its range of eco-efficient solar powered products at Plantworx (6th – 8th June). The new highly innovative drying room is a world first and looks set to save up to 86% in energy costs.
Design-patented, the 10’x8’ drying unit with two changing benches and a coat rail is the only stand alone, self-contained solar powered unit on the market. Its launch follows successful onsite trials by client Interserve who was impressed to find an alternative to existing costly to run mobile drying room products.
It has a thermostatically controlled solar powered, blown-air heating system supported by an oil burner for quicker and quieter drying. Crucially, Garic’s unit utilises solar energy for its electrical functions and negates the need for traditional diesel fuelled generators or input from mains electricity. Huge savings are evident from an environmental point of view and in monetary terms too.
This is illustrated by comparing the new unit with a traditional electric convector heated drying room. The latter would place a 63% load on a 10kVA generator and, as many generator manufacturers would quote, fuel consumption at this loading would be around 1.7l per hour. Garic’s innovative blown-air heated unit uses a maximum of 0.5l of oil or diesel per hour, giving immediate fuel savings of 1.2l of diesel per hour.
Garic’s self-contained solar powered drying room – tested during the bleak British winter – has consistently achieved carbon emissions of just 195.9kg and used 73l of diesel per week giving a fuel saving of 86%. Based on a 50 week working year, this equates to a saving of over 9.7t of carbon and 3,650ltrs of diesel. With the current cost of diesel gas oil at 48p per litre (week 8, 2017) this gives a saving of £1,752 per annum (£35.04 per week).
Taking its market leading development one step further, Garic has developed a combination toilet and drying unit (the Eco 2+1+Dryer) which conveniently provides two male and one female toilet with a 5’x7.8’solar powered drying room.
Garic is also exhibiting a comprehensive selection of products from its welfare and accommodation, environmental, dust and pollution control, plant, storage and lighting ranges.
